The Danes and the Germans

 

Honore Daumier (1808-1879), Voyons, faut pas etre injuste, lithograph, plate 8 from the series Croquis Parisiens, published in Le Charivari, 1864. Daumier Register 3287, second state (of 2), 8 x 9.4 inches.

A very good impression, from the letterpress edition, with the newsprint verso.

 

Original Text:
– Voyons, faut pas etre injuste, quoiqu’on aime les Danois…. il y a du bon chez les Allemands …. la biere!

 

Translation:
We shouldn’t be unfair. One may like the Danes… but let’s not forget that the Germans also have something good… their beer!
